Engage with PAISBOA and Your Fellow Members!

PAISBOA supports a variety of Affinity Groups so that Business Officers can build the network they need to excel in their jobs, and so that other members of the Business Office have a professional network that supports their efforts. 

PAISBOA Affinity Groups include Business Officers, Plant Managers, Human Resources Professionals, Technology Directors, and Sustainability Coordinators. Coming Soon: School Store Managers.

Participants are able to share information, knowledge, skills and experience while connecting with their counterparts at other independent schools and universities.

There are many ways to get involved with your Affinity Group, depending on your interest and capacity. The groups meet periodically to discuss the most pressing topics of the day and to provide support, materials, and a sounding board for members. Each Affinity Group has a steering committee that works with the PAISBOA team and our vendor partners to bring members timely, relevant professional development programming.

In-Person Meetings and Webinars offer affinity groups the opportunity to meet face-to-face and learn from content area experts, vendor partners, and each other. In-Person meetings take place in the PAISBOA Offices in Wayne, PA, and webinars are offered periodically. Invitations are sent to email addresses as well as the listservs so that you do not miss an opportunity to come together and learn from each other. 

Communities are private, members-only spaces within our website in which Affinity Group members can collect and share resources and participate in more detailed discussions on topics which are important to a particular group in the business-related colleagues. 

E-Lists (formerly known as Listservs) are popular, useful communication tools for PAISBOA members that foster the collegial sharing of information in real time to ensure that schools receive important, time sensitive information and resources, and to cultivate member collaboration.
